Calling the American Embassy
Kathy uses a local telephone to call the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm. An embassy official answers the phone.
E:U.S. Embassy in Stockholm. How may I help you?
K:Hello? My name is Kathy Mannings. I'm an American citizen. I think I've lost my passport.
E:That's a serious problem, young lady. Are you sure you've lost it?
K:I'm afraid so. If I have lost it, what can I do?
E:Please look very carefully for it. It will take a lot of paperwork and time to replace your passport.
K:Believe me, we're looking high and low for it.
E:If you can't find it, you'll have to come down to the embassy to the Passport Section.You'll have to fill out forms there and pay for a replacement.
K:I have your address, but I don't know your business hours.
E:The Passport Section is open on weekdays from a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
K:Well, thanks a lot.
E:You're welcome. And good luck!
